To know Jesus Christ through worship and service, sharing his love and grace with a vibrant community, and through the joy of the Holy Spirit who empowers us to offer our talents to the glory of God and the care of humanity.
MAINTAINING THE MISSION
As a Christian community, Christ Church parishioners have committed ten percent of all contributions to the parish for outreach projects in the greater Puerto Vallarta area. Individually Christ Church members volunteer with local organizations that provide special care for God’s children. With the generous contribution of our members and friends, and personal physical involvement, we do represent the spirit of Jesus Christ in this world as our Lord and Savior.
ESCUELA DE MIGRANTES
The parish Outreach Committee has adopted a school on the outer edge of San Vicente, serving a settlement of migrant workers who travel within Mexicó to follow the harvest work during the seasons. Without a permanent legal address their children are not allowed in the regular public school system. Over two hundred children are being educated in four small trailers provided by the government and four part- time teachers not paid by the government. Under the leadership of Dennis Rike we have been able to build and equip a kitchen and a sheltered eating area to provide daily lunches for the students. As an ongoing project 0f the outreach committee food is provided to supplement the government’s supplies. A volunteer parishioner travels twice a week to the school to teach English to grades 5 through 9. Our goal is to improve the education and quality of life for these children.
